Our goal this year is larger than ever – and there’s a good reason for it. Although researchers are developing new and safer therapies for children, the treatments are expensive and insurance costs are rising. As these costs increase for children, we are expanding our programs to provide more financial and emotional support to meet the needs of northern Nevada families.
This year, we aim to raise $400,000 during our Know the Gold Campaign to continue the expansion of our programs. The William N. Pennington Foundation has generously agreed to match each donation to the campaign dollar-for-dollar, up to $400,000, until January 31, 2020.
Join us for the Know the Gold Finale and 12-hour radiothon.

On September 16, 2019, we celebrated 15 years of hosting our Tournament of Hope to support local children battling cancer. It started as a beautiful day at Montreux, but just as life brings us storms, a rainstorm breezed through the course soaking golfers, volunteers and staff head-to-toe. The storm helped remind us that local children face storms every day. We thought of their resiliency and determination to get through their diagnosis and the importance of the support from others.
We thought of these children, like Brady who teed-off the tournament, and their everyday battle with cancer. “I can’t think of a way that this diagnosis has not affected our family,” said Nicole, Brady’s mom. “It has affected us emotionally, spiritually, financially, and shook us to the core, but we will come out on the other end stronger than ever.” His story is similar to many of the other children NNCCF serves and we are doing everything in our power to ease the burden of his diagnosis. We are grateful for the many sponsors and friends that have supported this tournament over the last 15 years and we hope the sunshine after the rain reminds everyone that there is hope after a cancer diagnosis.
